SC Squared Outdoors or SC2 Outdoors. The SC represents the first and last initials of both our names for those who don’t know us and since there are two of us behind this venture well, yes you guessed it, there’s the 2, to the second power. There you have it, SC2 Outdoors.
We decided that is was time to start our journey forward in doing something we love, something that we are fiery passionate about, something that always has us together. It brought us to building SC2 Outdoors. Hunting, fishing and being outdoors is so intertwined in our lives and we are so grateful for the experiences, memories and lessons it has taught us in life, that we feel compelled to share it with others.
Through guiding and outfitting, Shelley and I desire to help others share their own experiences with family and friends while building memories that will last a lifetime. We want to see the joy it brings to hook a salmon, and the exhilaration one gets when a gobbler is full strut at 15 yards, regardless of whether it pulls the hook or he runs off alarm putting unscathed by a near miss, it’s about the journey, the successes and the failures, it’s about living and enjoying the great outdoors with others and all that it has to offer.
Someday, when you're thinking back on that trip you booked with Shawn and Shelley Chittim of SC2 Outdoors, you might even be by yourself or with others looking at pictures and you realize you are smiling, you’ll know then we did our job.
Our goal is always to exceed your expectations.
I’m the co-owner of SC2 outdoors and am proud to begin the journey of establishing ourselves as one of the premier guides and outfitters in California. There are many great guides and it is my goal to always be in the discussion.I have been guiding annually for the last 29 years, in both California and Oregon. For the last 24 years, I’ve been working with Sarvis Prairie Outfitters. It was time to come home. I’m proud to be back concentrating in California, our own backyard our turf, our waters, and we are going to shine.
I am as most, a sum of my parts. I’m always striving to be better than I was yesterday, as a guide, as a man, as a husband and as a father. My grandfather was a cattleman and big game hunter, my dad an avid upland bird hunter, but more importantly an awesome businessman. I owe my love of fishing to my mom, fisherwoman before it was cool. My grandmother was always there to cook whatever I brought home and for whomever I brought with me, what a lady. My wife, simply the best of the best, and of course my daughter, whom is and will always be the greatest accomplishment of my life.
Those are just a few who have molded me in life to be the man I am today, and I owe so much more to so many more. Everyone leaves an impression or a subtle influence on you, if you’ve invested your time to truly get to know them.
What you will get from me always is honesty, integrity and 100% commitment and effort to you and your trip, I promise you that. In the end there is nothing more important than our reputation and our word.
She is the co-owner of SC2 outdoors, an accomplished outdoors woman with an amazing resume of experience in the hunting and fishing world. She possesses incredible inner strength, endurance, mental fortitude and positive attitude.Her father was a “legendary” bear guide in Northern California, tougher than any man I have ever personally met, probably where her strength and matter of fact attitude come from. She gets her sensibility, devoutness and dedication from her mother, priceless traits. Once you meet her you’ll know that it’s one hell of a combination.
She will be involved in all aspects of the SC2 Outdoors, from the booking of trips, to deck handing, planning, organizing and guiding. She adds a logical touch to the trip, when I say “ah we don’t need that”, but are so glad we have it when we need it. You’ll never hear “I told you so”, but I will and we’ll get that look. Yep, you know the one.
Shelley will always give you honesty, integrity, humbleness, kindness and motivation. Shelley is our logistics specialist, and will keep your trip organized, well managed. She will be unbelievably dedicated to you and your hunt; she takes that honor personally and to heart.
We simply love people and love the outdoors and everything that goes with it. We hire guides and outfitters when we feel the need for that added advantage or local knowledge. We’ve lived it from the client’s perspective.
We have been extremely fortunate to share some incredible hunts and fishing with our friends and family. We are extremely grateful for those experiences and what they have taught us. We have the greatest network of friends, who have taught us, helped us and shared their knowledge and experience, not only in the outdoors but also in life. We hope we have done and will continue to do the same.
We appreciate your consideration of SC2 Outdoors and our services. We sincerely wish you much success on your next hunting or fishing trip, and that your experience is safe and memorable, wherever your outdoor life may take you.
